For whisky (scotch), I like The Macallan. Note the spelling - two a's - not Macallen.
Real Scotch is made by Real Scotsman!
Single malt and you can try many kinds - from light pine kind of taste to oak, and charcoal....have fun! This is a good place to start.
No blendeds, not Canadian, and definitely not American. If you want bourbon, that is a different story and you can go to Kentucky....
Hopefully Paul and rmax will weigh in though - they have access to a broader array of brands.
I feel a little warmer already. :D
